Tyrrell Hatton bought a new putter at Golf Galaxy, shot 64 at the Northern Trust

Published

on

Entering the Northern Trust at No. 92, Tyrrell Hatton knew he needed a good week to finish inside the top 100 and earn a spot in the next playoff event. Thanks to a final-round 7-under 64, Hatton moved up to No. 71 in the FedEx Cup standings, punching his ticket for TPC Boston.

That’s hardly the whole story, however, as Hatton was just 1 under through three rounds and putting terribly–minus-4.978 in strokes gained:putting with his Ping Vault Oslo.

Here’s a look at the offending party.

The Tour trucks long gone, Hatton took drastic measures after his third round: He went to a Paramus, New Jersey, Golf Galaxy to purchase a new putter, picking up a Ping Sigma G Darby. It did the trick, he picked up 2.840 strokes on the green during his seven-birdie Sunday effort.

Hatton tweeted this after the round.

As you can see from the relative specs via Ping, the two putters are pretty similar.

    Not only did Tyrrell Hatton buy a putter, he bought it from Karina. That’s what matters here.

    A golfer, albeit a professional, needs a piece of equipment. He goes to a golf store to purchase said equipped. STOP THE PRESSES!!!!

      You made a mistake, instead of Ping, you meant to write Mizuno, and it’s 85 years.

    Wonder if Ping will reimburse him the $172? Every time i get a new club they usually go automatically where they are supposed to for the first 3-4 rounds. After that i pay the piper for all those perfect shots and it all falls apart.

      He saved the receipt for business expense. Every little bit helps (say the politicians and bankers).

Bryson DeChambeau’s latest message to slow play critics: “Screw all y’all haters”

Published

on

Just a few of days after vowing to step up his attempts to improve his pace of play, a video has surfaced from this Wednesday’s Pro-Am at Medinah of DeChambeau defending his pace at last week’s event and attacking his critics.

The video which you can see here at the Twitter account @DMeyer06, appears to be taken on a fans Snapchat account, and within it DeChambeau states

“I was never on the clock last week, y’all can say whatever you want, but we’re having a fu**ing good time. So screw all y’all haters”

DeChambeau’s message in the Snapchat video looks to contradict the statement he posted to his Instagram account on Monday where he said

“I’m constantly trying to improve and I will do my very best to improve my pace.”

DeChambeau is currently in action at this week’s BMW Championship where he posted a score of 1 under par in his opening round.
